Seagate Launches Next-Generation Exos X Storage Arrays in Singapore
The Exos X series is a family of petabyte-scale, rack-mounted block storage enclosures that aggregate and virtualize dozens to hundreds of hard drives and SSDs for maximum data resiliency, availability and performance.
Today, Seagate announced its next-generation Exos® X, the advanced storage arrays powered by Seagate’s sixth generation controller architecture. Now available in Singapore, the new Exos X systems feature up to twice the performance of the previous generation and enhanced enterprise-class durability.
The Exos X series is a family of petabyte-scale, rack-mounted block storage enclosures that aggregate and virtualize dozens to hundreds of hard drives and SSDs for maximum data resiliency, availability and performance. Exos X systems are ideal as highly available enterprise storage infrastructure for conventional enterprise data centers as well as private clouds.
To help protect the stored data, Exos X systems incorporate ADAPT (Advanced Distributed Autonomic Protection Technology) erasure coding solution with Seagate’s innovative self-healing storage technology ADR (Autonomous Drive Regeneration).
Featuring the new controller engineered and built by Seagate, the new Exos X systems can achieve a new level of RAID array availability, reliability, and performance for better efficiency while significantly reducing administrative burden. Exos X systems will help data centers form a future-proof data management strategy.
Additionally, the new VelosCT™ controller enables superior performance up to 725,000 IOPS (I/O per second) at 1ms latency, sequential read speeds up to 12GB/s and writes at 10GB/s. Data centers can take advantage of the hyperscale-class efficiency, simple frictionless deployment, and streamlined data management across a broad range of demanding workload, always-on environments.
The Exos X systems also provide support for the Redfish and Swordfish open standard management protocols.
Seagate’s Exos X 2U12, 2U24, and the high-density enclosure 5U84—all with the new VelosCT ASIC controllers are available globally via trusted Seagate distributors. For further details, please visit Seagate’s All Flash, Hybrid & Disk Arrays page.
